FROM THE ARCHIVE OF: The TV Room
Just under an hour before The Learning Zone at 3am, and we have a short burst of test card before Pages from Ceefax takes over.
[00:00:00] PROGRAMME PROMOTION: the final seconds of a trail for Reputations.
The programme airs on Tuesday at 9pm on BBC Two.
[00:00:05] TEST CARD: unusually, the test card puts in an appearance. And it’s Test Card W and tone.
At this point – in the gap between the end of the day’s main schedule and the start of The Learning Zone – BBC Two would normally show Pages from Ceefax.
But on this occasion, we have about five minutes or so of the test card (edited down on our clip).
There was some intermittent switching between 16:9 and 4:3 whilst the test card was on air.
There’s an edit point in our clip at [00:00:56] where we rejoin the test card when it switches to 4:3 again, just ahead of going to Pages from Ceefax.
If you know the reason for this brief display of the test card on late-night BBC Two, please get in touch.
[00:01:23] TELETEXT IN-VISION: Pages from Ceefax appears, accompanied by music – and would run until The Learning Zone at 3am.
